The Bedford High School Performing Arts Department will present CHICAGO: TEEN EDITION, the long-running Kander & Ebb Broadway musical, March 15 through 18 in the BHS Auditorium. The production, led by director Katrina Faulstich, features approximately eighty students in the cast, crew, and pit orchestra. 

CHICAGO: TEEN EDITION satirizes the corruption of the criminal justice system and the concept of the celebrity criminal. The story centers on aspiring chorine Roxie Hart, who murders a faithless lover and convinces her hapless husband, Amos, to take the rap . . . until he finds out he’s been duped, and turns on Roxie. Awaiting trial in Mama Morton’s prison, Roxie and another “Merry Murderess,” Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight and the headlines, ultimately joining forces in search of the “American Dream”: fame, fortune, and acquittal. This musical is based on real people living in Chicago in the 1920s and the city’s historical fascination with women who murder.

CHICAGO: TEEN EDITION is most appropriate for audiences in middle school and up. The show runs 90 minutes with one intermission. 

Tickets will be available to the general public starting February 27 through the Performing Arts Department website: Tickets are $14 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. The online box office will close seven hours prior to each performance time, but tickets will be sold at the door if available. 

CHICAGO: TEEN EDITION is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals.

Book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Based on the play by Maurine Dallas Watkins
